republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as he begins the second term. if you ask john boehner or mitch mcconnell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inaugur
create the legacy. earlier this week, as you probably know, speaker boehner spoke on society saying the obama administration wants to, quote, annihilate the republican party, and shove it in, quote, the dust pan of history. do you agree with that interpretation of obama's inaugural address? >> i believe that republicans and democrats both have the design to try to become dominant, and so the republicans would certainly like to decrease the power of the democratic party and the democratic party would like to decrease the power of the republican party. that's what politics works, and maybe speaker boehner, because he gets bossed around by fellow republicans, maybe he's a little sensitive to those comments. >> let me ask you about your role, talking about helping create a legacy. you've been involved in philanthropy. do you have plans for 2014 congressional cycle, sir? >> well, no i'm not running if that's what you mean.

and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
-of-living adjustments. john boehner and republicans decided they want to have an argument over the debt ceiling, because of the new year we will be better positioned. they quickly have realized that is not going to be the lever they thought it would be. host: you have covered three presidents, clinton, bush, and now president obama. people say the political divide between these branches is stronger now than it has been in years. you agree or disagree? guest: i absolutely agree. host: why/ guest: i think it is a building that has been taking place frankly since the past couple administrations. it was the war in iraq. for the republicans, the government spending. it is also the election system and the way we run our primaries. we have a more ideological- purified house of representatives than we have had in a very long time. that is because some people would argue redistricting, as well, which in the past election both parties to it. in the states where democrats are not in control they redraw the districts to make the majority democrats. the republican side as well. this is the first time republicans hav
the gop should embrace obama. so if you are talking to john boehner or mitch mcconnell, you will have sort of a different message to them. i don't consider you a liberal democrat or a right-wing republican. right? politics aside. >> i am sort of down the middle. so why would you argue that thegol g.o.p. should embrace obama? >> i didn't write that headline. my friends wrote it but the gist of this article is, is that if you look at everything obama did or most of the things he did over the past four years, his big policies, he borrowed them from past republican presidents. i went all the way back to nixon. nix on raised taxes on the rich cut them on the poor. ronald reagan backed an assault weapons ban. ronald reagan was the first president to support what we now call cap and trade. ronald reagan. when i tweeted that yesterday, when i wrote about it, of course, i got bombarded with the usual, oh, you are just full of it, bravenld u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. def -- brand u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. people don't get it. r
boehners and the mitch mcconnells and say in the search for common ground, i hear what you guys are saying? >> look, i think the whole theme of this speech was that throughout our history we've had very, very significant differences and we've been able to work through those differences and of course, you know, you're a student of history, now we've gone through more significant eras of dissent and disagreement than this. his point was we can come together. the point on absolutism though, is we can't come together if we are unyielding and unbending in our points of view. >> why so little talk about jobs and the economy? >> well, i think if you looked at the opening passages of the president's speech he talked about building an economy in which opportunity abounds, in which people can get ahead. that's the fundamental question and obviously jobs is a -- is an essential issue for our country, but also, building an economy which those jobs pay and which people can get ahead, that's fundamental. i mean, we have a state of the union speech this three weeks in which he'll have an opportunity to l
admiral joe sestak, and joy reed break down the triumph of clinton's testimony. >>> boehner gets a deal on the debt ceiling. congressman chris van hollen takes us into the funny numbers he had to push. >>> if you want another concord bridge, i got some buddies. >> ted nugent is assembling a moron militia. we'll show you what he is going to be up against. >>> the transaction tax. americans pay it every day on everything we buy. but why doesn't wall street have to pony up? >>> and the latest on the quest for filibuster reform. will the senate actually change the rules and get something done? senator bernie sanders with us tonight. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. if you wanted to know why congress has a record low approval rating, all you had to do was watch the circus on capitol hill today. outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton testified before senate and house committees today about the attack on the u.n. consulate in benghazi, libya. the committee members already have access to the full accountability review board report on the attack, as well as c
, but it is going to be pretty hard and a lot of public pressure on boehner but i think the president is going to use the next four years. i think he is outpushing his agenda and he needs to go over the heads of the republicans in the senate and house to do it. i think this will be a pretty activist presidency more than it >>> ready for a good news story? >> the only reason anybody goes to congress is to be in congress. and to fight with people in congress so that people will give them more money so that they can stay in congress. but that dysfunction that we should see today shouldn't be seen as normal. back to 2000, still a lot of pointless showboating. we got a payoff. it was about apes. the chimpanzee act created for those chimps used in research. lots of bipartisan support. 41 republican are co sponsors. it passed and bill clinton signed it into law. it was a practical framework set in motion. and because they did that, today something else that wasn't pointless was able to happen in government. a panel issued recommendations on what america should do with the chimps that we should have i
boehner, the republican majority leader, eric cantor. the people that he will be doing battle with, just after this is done. but this is the moment for unity. and talking to the president's aides about what he hopes to convey in this speech, he will acknowledge the deep divisions, the deep political divisions, that dominated so much of his first term. he'll talk about, despite those divisions, we have to come together to do what we can. >> i'm looking at the scene now, we all are together, as the president comes out of church. we see sasha with him, who yesterday told him, he didn't mess up. at the other -- malia will be coming in soon. i think we're all struck at the difference in four years, as we look at them. and remembering that four years ago, at this moment, the president had just been released the nuclear codes. in the white house, they were scrambling to put toys on the beds for the girls, organizing a scavenger hunt to find their ways around. >> today, after the ceremony, they'll just be going home. it's been their home for the last four years. the president's family getting in
boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in the house, and mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, are at the white house right now having coffee with the president. do you think that there really is a chance that there can be some sort of a get together, bipartisan effort, something we haven't seen thus far? >> you know, not on everything, bob, but on some things for sure. not just because people are becoming enlightened, but because of their self-interest. if you look at your own polling and the polling that we have seen in the last few days, the republican party is trading at record lows. the congress at almost record lows. the strategy of obstruction has not been worked well for the republican party. that's why i think you saw them retreat from the plan to push this debt ceiling issue immediately upon returning to work. so i think that there's a prospect for getting some things done. certainly on issues like immigration reform. there's a powerful impetus for there to be progress. i think we can make some. >> david, thank you very much. you're going to be leaving
't agree with them on their positions. >> just today john boehner released a video for the march for life. let's take a look at it. >> with all that is at stake, it's becoming more and more important for us to share the truth with our young people and to encourage them to lock arms, speak out for life, and help make abortion a relic of the past. let that be one of our most fundamental goals this year. >> didn't the republicans already lose that fight, eugene? how is anything going to be different? >> nothing is going to be different. there is an uneasy consensus in the country, but it's a fairly durable consensus that nobody loves abortion, but abortion should be legal and infrequent, as infrequent as we can make it. and that is -- that's the basic agreement. that's what people basically believe. they don't believe what republicans want, which is to outlaw all abortions in every case, according to their platform, and as a result, they're seen as hostile to the interests of women and others who care about women's reproductive rights. >> can they do a face-lift, an image change between now
boehner said yesterday. but the virginia state republicans who pulled the real shady move yesterday. the senate is split evenly between democrats and republicans, 20 apiece. but the republicans held a one-vote advantage. so they passed a redistricting amending that makes two republican seats more secure. the republican governor bob mcdonell has not yet indicated what he will do if that bill reaches his desk. we will be back with more show after the break. stay with us. ♪ commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now.

on inaugural ceremonies, chuck schumer, the speaker of the house of representatives, john boehner, house majority leader, eric cantor and house minority leader, nancy pelosi. [ applause ] >> president obama having arrived at the platform, greeting both of his daughters and his wife and mother-in-law. you see behind him, there is vice president biden, chuck schumer, chair of the inaugural committee is the first person we'll hear from and call proceedings to order. and then it unfolds like the greatest graduation ceremony ever. >> rachel, there's a moment when the new president takes over, like when reagan took over from carter, when the chief of secret service walks behind one guy to the other guy, it is pretty creepy. it is pretty creepy when you're the guy losing protection, but nicely enough, it will be the same guy there. >> jerry ford was the first president who upon leaving office from the inauguration of the new president, jimmy carter, decided to leave by helicopter, seen as a rather odd way to leave on the way, but every president has followed that tradition. it is a dramatic way
connell. speaker boehner and congressman eric cantor. i confirmed that. with each of their offices. a nice bipartisan tradition and good way to kick off a new term. those of you discussing he does not do enough socializing with leaders, here he is doing just that. he's been with -- the wives, vice president biden and his wife has been there as has the first lady. they will then head in the motorcade and make their way up here to the capitol where they will go into a hold for about an hour before the president speaks. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the wide shots of the white house. not the back side with the rounded edge. but a flat-wide front of the white house. >> there you see senator kerry on the right. >> one of the big differences when you have a change of power, you know, current president greets the new president and one of the traditions is he leaves a note. that doesn't happen this time. president obama doesn't need to leave himself a note about the seco
but then the house took recess and did nothing. house speaker john boehner called a vote under pressure. once congress reconvened the first week in january first they approved the $9 billion then the additional $50 billion two weeks later. the vote in the senate is on the remaining plus $50 billion. we're back after the break. stay with us. armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone is ready with the know-how we need for a new tomorrow.

. with boehner, mcconnell and obama, you would be interested to see if they'll take any business. >> people that have had very public disagreements over key issues in the last several weeks or months alone. you have to wonder what the tone in that room might be. >> reporter: especially with mcconnell. it's never been a warm relationship. the president and mitch mcconnell have had exactly one meeting in the first term, one on one together. and yet mitch mcconnell might be the most important republican on capitol hill. he and vice president biden have a great relationship. >> as we watch these limousines headed to st. john's church, it's a short rooi, we expect the president to get out shortly. tell us about the inauguration speech. we remember the one four years ago. do you expect it to be a scaled-back speech this time around? >> reporter: realistic hope is probably the way to put it. the public wants -- they do know that while we may be cynical to the message of breaking the g d gridlock and the divisiveness of washington, the speech is not designed for us here in washington. it's designe
. why on earth can't paul ryan, speaker boehner, and the rest of them agree with that statement? what is wrong with that encompassing the people of this country rather than dismissing so many people as takers? why can't they agree with those statements of the president? >> because they agree with the statements by mitt romney, that half of the country are takers, half of them are people that don't contribute to society, half of them don't deserve the benefits that they're entitled to, and that 1% of this country are the people that provide the jobs, provide everything, and they are the richest people in the world, and they didn't make it with any luck. they didn't make it with support. they made it because they were the best of america. 1%, and 99 american people said you couldn't be more wrong than you were on that, and we will show you. and had it not been for reapportionment and state legislatures and republican governors, we would have run back i really believe the house of representatives. we won it by over a million democratic votes, but i tell you this, it's going to be differe
and a lot of public pressure on boehner but i think the president is going to use the next four years. i think he is outpushing his agenda and he needs to go over the heads of the republicans in the senate and house to do it. i think this will be a pretty activist presidency more than it was in the first term. >> i like talking to you about stuff that i'm excited about. i really appreciate your being here. we will be right back. use your maxperks card and get a 10-ream case of officemax multiuse paper for just 4.99 after maxperks rewards. find thousands of big deals now... at officemax. looks like you're in a pickle. yeah. can you get me out of it ? just so happens i know a chap... book any flight and hotel together and get access to our free personal concierge service. any need, any question, we're on call 24/7. and save hundreds with our best offer yet, now extended due to popular demand. get an adt security system starting at just $49 installed, but only for a limited time. that's an instant savings of $250. don't leave your family's safety to chance. call or visit adt.com/tv. both: i
-abortion advocates will gather in d.c. for the march on life. house speaker john boehner, former presidential candidate rick santorum are among those who will be speaking there. and that's their right to march. but over the last few years, we've seen women's health rights come under a vicious attack from virginia republican governor bob mcdonald pushing an invasive ultrasound bill to mississippi trying to push personhood bills and todd akin saying women's bodies had a way of shutting down pregnancies during a legitimate rain. now a lawmaker has introduced a bill that would force rape victims to carry their babies to term and their babies would be used as evidence during a court trial. under the bill sponsored by the state representative, kathryn brown, a rape victim who had an abortion would be thrown in jail for tampering with evidence. joining me is pat davis, the executive director of progress now in new mexico. it's great to have you here, pat. you are on the front lines of what's going on there. obviously, trying to steer people in the right direction of information when it comes to a po

solve this problem together and the we has to be inclusive and has to include john boehner and the house and the senate. we've got to get government to work well together and the president's the leader and he's got to provide the leadership to make it happen of the he didn't do that very well in his first term. >> steve: sure. it would be great to see four years of that. mr. card, i know you have been involved in five inaugurations. you've served for three different presidents starting with ronald reagan and then 41 and then 43 as well. today, while we watch what's going on on the west face of the capitol, at the white house, whole bunch of people are reenergized because a lot of people get new offices, new assignments. plain how that works -- explain how that works behind the scene. >> it's sort of like new year's day. you're all excited and you make all kinds of promises that you're going to lose weight and exercise and it's very exciting. people get to move into offices. they shuffle around, get new phone numbers, new business cards. take an oath of office to help the president do his
